Forum: prelinger Subject: Re: Sid Davis's Films

To me, ALL Sid Davis films have the 'nightmarish' element in common. I believe this is what made him so unique. Rick should think about putting out a DVD compilation of ALL the Sid Davis films. They are among the best on the archives. I know there are many others (referenced from that are not included in the archives as well.

Spuzz: Re: THE CHILD MOLESTER. If I hadn't known I'd have thought this was another Sid Davis film. Its similarity to his rubric is uncanny. What was your source for this transfer? VHS, Beta-SP 16 mm or ?? Could an MPEG-2 720x480 version be uploaded if possible? Do you or anyone else know where a higher quality print can be obtained? The snippets included on HELL'S HIGHWAY were very high quality, with excellent color, seemingly taken from a pristine 16 mm print.
